I’ve always felt self conscious of the world around me.
The eyes that pry on me.
Letting the media tell me who I need to be.
But now that I’m older,
Not sure if quite wiser.
I’ve accepted who I want to be.
Who I already am.
And letting these colors fade through the colors that currently flow through the world.
